This is Good News! There has allways been some kinda friction between the Warriors and the Junior Generals and Im not sure why. This is good for afiliation purposes and for fan's too.
I have been to a few of the Generals games at the Iceland Arena and for Tier 3 Level the Hockey is pretty good - I would say the caliber is a bit higher than when they had the team in the Central States League.
Flint has become a Junior hockey town whether the "old boys club" likes it or not and I to see this partnership with the Warriors as positive News. Flint needs to put the old Minor Pro Generals in the History books and we can still reminiss about them days but Junior hockey is a big part of todays game. I will support the Warriors again this comming season to the extent of 10 or 12 of the home games and I might be persuaded to make it out to Iceland to watch the "Junior" Generals play a couple of times.

John Bell says:
Good skinny Randy - BTW do you know when the 2013-2014 NAHL schedule will be available?
hey John Bell, how's it going, my ESPN Radio chum?
To answer your question: The complete NAHL schedule should be finalized by the end of next week, I am told.
That old Sportswriter from the Flint Journal is part of the "Good Ole Boys Club" that wants nothing to do with the Warriors which is fine as the Warriors are reaching out to "real hockey fans" of all age's and fans are getting accustomed to the Juniors Game.
That may be true about the "old sportswriter" (I think you are referring to Brendan Savage) but Ross Maghliese of the Flint Journal's Mlive.com does a good job of at least recognizing the Warriors and the NAHL in a reputable manner.
There is more coverage of the Warriors on JUNIORHOCKEY.COM than any wheres else.You do the best job of covering the Warriors!
Thanks for the nice words.
Stephen Heisler, who brought me to JuniorHockey.com in December of 2011, gives me free rein to write about whatever I want to within the junior hockey landscape. It is Stephen who has built and expanded JuniorHockey.com to the extent that the Michigan Warriors, as an example, get the coverage that they do. Folks may or may not agree with all of what Stephen writes but this is a guy who has significantly raised the profile of junior hockey at many levels.
Your wife drop a few too many sugar cubes in your coffee this morning?
